Thread: Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

    Default Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

    Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast were on sale (8 Hour sale) for $1.79 per
    pound. I was running low so I purchased my usual 10 lbs. Now BSCB can run
    from $5.00 per pound to $1.79 per pound. For the most part I don't see a
    lot of flavor difference between the brands/prices.

    How about you? Do you have a preference? Are the higher prices BSCB worth
    the difference in price?

    The local Mexican megamart that opened here this summer has been
    having great sales. This week they have BSCBs on sale for
    $1.48/pound. I would get some more, but I still have some from the
    last great sale they had.

    I get them because sometimes there are dishes that do better with
    them. I probably could save a lot more money buying the bone-in
    breasts and doing it myself. I know how to bone them, but I am lazy
    sometimes. For what it was worth, last week the bone-in breasts were
    $0.78/pound, at the same market.

    The sales run all week.

    My preference is for boneless skinless thighs or legs.

    I did pick up some boneless skinless breasts a few weeks ago when they
    were at a price similar to the one you report; but only because there were
    no boneless skinless thighs or legs; I don't find them superior.

    Snob-Deflector: Being perfectly capable of boning my own, I often don't
    buy boneless skinless chicken anythings. But when they're on sale, I
    can't resist the convenience.

    For me, they run from $2.69 to $0.29 per pound, depending on the kind
    of chicken. The higher price is for free range organic, the lower
    price is factory bird on sale. Average is probably 1.29. You have to
    add to that the 3 or 4 minutes it takes to cut the breast off the bird
    and pull off the skin. -aem

    I'm now living in Ottawa (Canada) and I'd be lucky to find BSCB for $5/lb on
    sale. They are usualy between $8 and $12 per lb non sale prices. I do
    occasionaly find bone-in CB for $2 a lb though, which I do scoop up and
    freeze, debone myself if the occasion calls for it.

    Even factoring in exchange rates (between 90 and 95 cents USD at the
    moment), I have envy.

    I buy fresh split breast and debone it myself. It's cheaper and gives me
    ingredients for stock. :-)

    You get boneless legs? I've never seen those. I usually purchase the
    4lb bags of boneless skinless thighs also.

    I can get boneless legs here too..at the Mexican megamart. They are
    there regularly..but I don't often see them on sale. Still..the
    prices isn't bad. I like the flavor of them a lot...

    For me, BSCB might as well be tofu or saitan. If I'm going to eat
    meat, it should taste like meat.

    When I buy chicken it is usually a 10# bag of leg quarters for about
    $7 - I get drumsticks and thighs and the backs make stock.

    Yes, those do have much more flavor. But sometimes a chicken breast
    works best for something...either in terms of flavor, or texture. At
    least that is my opinion.

    The Safeway sale price here is $1.99. Otherwise it's $6.99+. They
    come from the same processing plant. Brands are not a big deal.

    Hear hear! It's been years since I bought boneless skinless chicken
    breasts. They are *always* a couple of dollars more per pound, even on
    sale. I do buy the boneless skinless thighs from time to time (I'm not a
    huge fan of chicken). I haven't tried deboning chicken thighs... yet.

    You know, that has not been my experience at all.

    I have found that, even with the obvious price-per-pound delta,
    four BSCB cost ~$5. Four breasts with bone and skin ~$5.
    Given the convenience(chicken breasts are usually my quick-thaw
    20 minute meal fallbacks) they are worth every penny.

    Costco carries fresh packs with four vacuum sealed, two-breast packages
    that are perfect for freezing.

    Huh. I like to hit the Mexican Market (Fiesta) for a lot of things.
    I'll have to look for boneless legs. Thanks!

    I actually have deboned hindquarters, but it's a rare event. <g> They
    had to be really cheap for me to do that, and I had to really want to
    make boneless meat for whatever reason at the time. I don't recall
    exactly.

    Sqwertz has pics tho' of fried chicken skins! I've never done that but
    I can only imagine it's superior to Chicharones...

    Heh. People eat pork rinds (I've been known to indulge from time to time
    when I get a crunchy-salty craving) so why not chicken skins? Wouldn't
    appeal to me in the least but whatever

    Our favorite form of chicken is de-boned breasts with the skin left on.
    I season them, cook them on the grill. I always make extra so I can
    use the leftover breast meat in chicken salad or whatever. The skin
    from those breasts gets fried crisp and served as a snack. Mmmm...
    Crunchy, salty and greasy.
